This book is written primarily as a resource for teachers but will also be of interest to members of the general public who would like to know a little more about rocks and the origins of the landscapes of Ireland. The book attempts to describe and explain the geography and geology of the physical features of Ireland, as depicted on the accompanying geological map of Ireland.

G.L. Herries Davies (1995). The Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI) is one of the world's oldest Geological Surveys. It was founded in 1845, but its roots extend back a further twenty years to 1825. In this volume a distinguished Irish earth scientist and historian of science tells, for the first time, the story of the Survey over its life of 150 years.

The GSI maintains important collections of Irish fossils obtained during the course of mapping programmes over the last 150 years. The bulk of the collections consist of the acquisitions made between the years 1845 and 1890. They are typical of all stratigraphic systems represented in Irish geology, and cover all the major fossil localities in the country. The collections contain more than 25,000 specimens and include over 1000 type and figured fossils (over 400 of these being palynomorphs), and are particularly strong in Lower Palaeozoic shelly faunas, and in Lower Carboniferous shelly fossils. Specimens, once in GSI's collections, relevant to Northern Ireland are now housed in the Ulster Museum. This publication catalogues the important holdings of this collection and is the result of extensive work by the authors.

The “Geochemical Atlas of Europe” is the contribution of the Association of Geological Surveys of the European Union (EuroGeoSurveys) to the IUGS/IAGC “Global Geochemical Baselines” project. The Geochemical Atlas of Europe comes in 2 volumes (each sold seperately) The European geochemical baseline survey covers 26 countries, and provides invaluable information about the natural and human-induced concentrations of chemical elements in different sample media of the near-surface environment (topsoil, subsoil, humus, stream sediment, stream water and floodplain sediment). This is the first multi-national project, performed with a harmonised sampling, sample preparation, and analytical methodology, producing high quality compatible data sets across national borders. Over 60 determinands were analysed, most for total and aqua regia extractable concentrations. The first phase of the project was completed, and the results published in a two-volume set, which is also freely available for viewing and downloading from www.gtk.fi/publ/foregsatlas together with the analytical data and photograph archive. The geochemical field manual can also be downloaded from www.gtk.fi/foregs/geochem/fieldman.pdf.

Compiled by Dr. Martin Feely (2002). This book is largely concerned with the geology and the use of shaped natural stone in the buildings of Galway. The book begins with an introduction to the bedrock geology of Galway and a history of dimension stone quarrying in Galway. The core of the book covers a geological walk in the heart of Galway and has an accompanying map of the different sites where the fascinating range of local and imported building stones can be seen.
